Help Bearing The Load

I was reading my Daily Bread and as I read today’s passage (or yesterday’s for some) I was reminded that no matter how hard life may seem, God is always there to help us with whatever load we may be carrying….

“In the 19th century, ships were often recklessly overloaded, resulting in those ships going down and the crews being lost at sea. In 1875, to remedy this negligent practice, British politician Samuel Plimsoll led the charge for legislation to create a line on the side of a ship to show if it was caring too much cargo. That “load line” became known as the Plimsoll Line, and it continues to mark the hulls of ships today. Sometimes, like those ships, our lives can seem overloaded with fears, struggles, and heartaches. We can even feel that we are in danger of going under. In those times, however, it is reassuring to remember that we have a remarkable resource. We have a heavenly Father who stands ready to help us carry that load. The apostle Peter said,” Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He might exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you”. He is capable of handling the cares that overwhelm us. Though the testings of life may feel like a burden too heavy to bear, we can have full assurance that our heavenly Father loves us deeply and knows our load limits. Whatever we face, He will help us to bear it.

When you feel as if you can’t go on, you’re tired, you feel weak, or worn; thank God that He knows your limits better than you do. And that, in Your strength, You can find the enablement to endure whatever is to come in life. God may lead us into troubled waters, but it is only to deepen our trust in Him. Just believe…
